From the moment we met Brenda and Roger we knew this was the place to be. We were met with coffee and Devon-style scones in glorious sunshine. Our room could not have been better, in a country house overlooking hills with sheep and cattle. All meals were excellent, preceded with drinks and accompanied with wine. Our hosts treated all guests... More

Spotless, relaxing B&B in a beautiful rural location with very friendly and caring hosts. Our second visit with our family (we all fitted in one room which is a great help with young children) and we were looked after very well again. Lovely garden and lots to do within a short drive - attractions and fantastic beaches. Highly recommended.

Once again we had a wonderful holiday. My husband has disabilities and Roger and Brenda attended to our every need in their own charming and efficient way. The food and accommodation were excellent. Lots of fun and we left feeling refreshed and ready to face the 'everyday' again. We look forward to our next visit.

This is our third visit to West Down and again it didn't disappoint with wonderful hosts in Brenda and Roger who made us feel like part of the family. Yet again the food was exceptional with a wide variety of choice. We stayed in the disabled room which was in a separate annexe and had all the facilities we required.... More

The most important first: We found and booked "West Down Guest House" from Germany by the internet. All experience reports and photos are absolutely correct. The farm is placed quiet but perfect to plan private trips in all directions. There is a huge garden included which invites you everywhere to enjoy and relax. The room was very clean and cosy....

This is our third stay with Roger and Brenda. Lovely room with all we needed, scrumy food and great fun. You cannot go to West Down and leave feeling unhappy. Made to feel like one of the family. Cannot wait to return.

If you are looking for a holiday that is full on, energetic and crazy, then the West Down Guest House is most definately not the place for you. However, if you want a place to really relax, to get to know other guests with great food and hospitality, then it most certainly is! This was our third visit to West... More
